Tabletop Tuesdays:
the Power of an Heirloom Spoon

Sometimes it's just a well-worn serving spoon that brings someone back to their grandmother's kitchen.  In this case, it's Jim's grandmother's serving spoon that he inherited when his Uncle Junie died. In fact Jim reminded me that he was the only relative that wanted the old worn spoons. Most of his cousins and even his brother and sister viewed it as junk.  But Jim views this old hotel silverware as a priceless, meaningful connection to his past.  Now can you see why I love Jim and why we are together.  We are truly sentimental.
What's really special about this spoon is how it is clearly worn on the left side from years of serving up those home cooked meals!!  Everytime we use this spoon I can see it transports Jim to his grandmother's table.

Ms Murky Mondays:
thank you Fairview Hospital

It can't be Monday, is it? I suppose that's what happens when one doesn't heed grandmotherly wisdom, and REST and drink plenty of fluids when one is ill. Seriously, I thought I had done so but my type-A personality defines rest as a couple of hours on the couch emailing etc. And I had to pay. I was sick enough to warrant a trip to the ER. And now thanks to the good Dr. Sabatelli in the Fairview Hospital ER, and some strong drugs I am feeling much better. The only problem - I missed the entire weekend!
I hope to get back to normal soon and will welcome my typical day with open arms. A dose of sickness is a great reality check. I have a great life!
